Emerson Arcadia Library

The Emerson Arcadia 2001 is a second-generation 8-bit console released by Emerson Radio Corp in 1982 following the release of ColecoVision. It was discontinued only 18 months later, with a total of 35 games having been released. Emerson licensed the Arcadia 2001 to Bandai which released it in Japan, and over 30 Arcadia clones exist.

The Arcadia is much smaller than its contemporary competitors and is powered by a standard 12-volt power supply so it can be used in a boat or a vehicle. This portability feature, however, requires a portable television, which was extremely rare in the early 1980s. It also has two outputs (or inputs) headphone jacks on the back of the unit, on the far left and far right sides.

The system came with two Intellivision-style controllers with a 12 button keypad and 'fire' buttons on the sides. The direction pads have a removable joystick attachment. Most games came with BoPET overlays that could be applied to the controller's keypads. The console itself had five buttons: power, start, reset, option, and select.

There are at least three different types of cartridge case styles and artwork, with variations on each. Emerson-family carts come in two different lengths (short and long) of black plastic cases.

Hobo is a lovable old rogue who wants to reach the other side of Grand Central Railway Station. But first he must cross a multi-lane freeway. 'honk, honk' 'toot, toot'. Those motorists won't slow down for anyone - so keep on your toes. Next Hobo scales the station wall. But watch out for the security guards waiting to send poor Hobo off to jail! Once over the wall Hobo does a spot of train-hopping. This requires real skill. Hobo must jump on top of one train, then on to another moving in the...

"Well, it's better than Crazy Gobbler... a little, anyway. Guide an enlongated Pac-Man through a redesigned maze, munching dots, energizers, and cherries that look like pairs of headphones. It's tough to decide what's more annoying... the chirping, droning, and completely aimless sound effects, or the uneven speed of your Pac- uh, Gobbler, who races around the maze with ease after eating an energizer but switches back to turtle speed once the power pill has run out." - Emerson of Sam
